About Me

The Elevator Pitch

I am an assistant professor and researcher at the Department of Computer Science, University of Tsukuba. I finished my PhD in 2010.

I approach teaching in a "learn-by-doing" way, giving students more exercises than memorization. I think that programming computer games is a great way to touch the many theoretical aspects of CS.

My current research involves application of machine learning to model optimization (specially computationally expensive models). I also have an interest in artificial life and cognitive and social AI.

I am a supporter of Open Science in CS (Open Source, Open Data, etc). I am also "in love" with Python, R, bio-inspired computation, cats and zombies.
